Lady Gaga to replace Beyonce at Coachella

Lady Gaga will replace Beyonce at the Coachella festival, after the singer pulled out on doctors' advice.

Gaga tweeted an updated line-up poster on Wednesday with the caption "Let's party in the desert", showing her name as the main headliner on two consecutive Saturdays.

The announcement comes after Queen Bey was forces to cancel her performance at the California show "following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months".

The Formation star, 35, and her husband, Jay Z, revealed in January they were expecting twins.

She posted an Instagram photo of her baby bump and said in the post: "We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over.

"We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes."

Coachella is North America's highest-grossing annual festival and runs from 14 to 23 April.

Lady Gaga's Joanne World Tour kicks off 1 August in Vancouver, and includes three nights at the Forum in Los Angeles.

Gaga will join the ranks of Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, Bon Iver, Justice, The xx, Devendra Banhart and Father John Misty at this year's event.
